Armed Forces Day 2017 saw the hottest day of the year so far which drew out the crowds and the motorbikes.  We are still receiving a few donations so the total amount raised will be announced shortly.


There were hundreds of bikes in the biggest ride in so far, it took around 30 minutes from the first bike arriving into the park until the last bike arrived!  This was followed by the troops and bands marching from Gypsies Green into Bents Park, South Shields.  There was a very moving open air church service which ended with a silence and the national anthem.

Arnold Clark then presented Support our soldiers with a van that they have use of for three years for their events and fundraising, this was a huge surprise and Elaine Middlemiss was overwhelmed with their generosity and kindness.  The day was then followed with loads of family fun and live bands and the custom bike, trike, scooter and car show and the day rocked to a close with the rock choir.

Here are a selection of photos from the event.
